Limited Edition Collector's Poster

I went full Drew Struzan on this poster illustration with lots of gritty textures and pencil lines galore. I wanted to recapture the feel of the 70's, 80's and 90's when Movie Posters were still good and fun to look at.
As predicted, I also made some changes from the mock up by removing the other two portraits. They made the composition too crowded and threw the whole thing off balance so, I made an executive decision and opted for this final solution. I hope that you all enjoy it.
I am releasing this poster as a Limited Run Print of 50 signed and numbered, total. That's it. The Print will be a 20 X 30 in size in Theater Poster dimensions.
There are 49 Posters left. Order up before they're gone. No reruns.
If you want one, I am accepting orders right now. You can PM me for details and how to secure yours.
Thanks for lookin', Erik
PS: I'm also taking a vote of what you would like me to paint as a poster next that you would also be interested in buying. Leave your suggestions in the comments and I will take the most popular and do my thang.
WEB DEVELOPMENT: Updating the credit line in WordPress
The credit line in WordPress themes is often found inside the functions.php file. There is a reason why you are warned about editing this file while logged into the back-end. If you make a mistake, your entire site can go down!
The best approach is to download the functions.php to your computer and make a copy of it. You access the file (which is inside the theme folder) via ftp or your web host's cPanel: wp-content > themes > theme-name > functions.php
I change the name of my copy to include the date, from "functions copy.php" to "functions-120118.php". That way, I can return to previous functions files if the need arises. I then edit the functions file. Any decent html editing software will highlight errors, so you'll see right away if you did something wrong. If all is well, save the file and upload it back to your web server. Refresh the front-end screen to see the changes.
